The airport example

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this chapter, an example of eight Persian international airports is proposed to illustrate how to adjust the introduced concepts in the previous chapters when the number of input factors and the number of output factors are more than two. The mathematical methods, the linear programming models, and the computer programming are developed with detailed illustrations. Several different approaches are discussed and the strengths and shortcomings of each approach is gradually represented. At the end of this chapter, readers are prepared to generalize the concepts of doing the job right/well for a set of homogenous firms with multiple input factors and multiple output factors.
